Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

What liter engine?

A flare is when the engine revs up before going into gear. Did you mean to say there was a delay or harsh engagement into D or R?

When turning a corner and applying throttle, what gear are you in when experiencing it come out of gear or slip and rev up?
